MBTA takes Red Line train out of service after video shows it moving with doors open

The MBTA said it removed a Red Line subway car from service Wednesday and inspected the doors of similar cars after a rider posted an online video showing a train traveling through tunnels with a door ajar.

“One of the door’s components malfunctioned, causing the door to stay open,” T spokesman Joe Pesaturo said in an e-mail. “Upon learning of the malfunction, Red Line personnel removed the subway car from service and took it to the maintenance facility for a repair.”
